[fbshare type=”button” float=”left”] Wayne Rooney’s appeal to have his two match ban reduced, or even suspended today was rejected by the FA. Rooney’s outburst came after netting his hat trick in the win over West Ham at the weekend and was automatically given a 2 month ban, suspending him from the FA-Cup Semi Final.

Rooney read a statement after the hearing saying he was “not the first player to have sworn on TV and I won’t be the last.”
“Unlike others who have been caught swearing on camera, I apologised immediately. And yet I am the only person banned for swearing. That doesn’t seem right”
Manchester United have expressed their disappointment in losing the England forward for 2 matches.
